Health Tip: Getting a Tattoo?

(HealthDay News) -- Tattoos may be popular forms of body art and expression, but they pose a number of potential health problems, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.

Here's the agency's list of potential tattoo risks:

  • An infection from a dirty needle.
  • An allergic reaction to inks used.
  • Development of scar tissue.
  • Formation of granulomas (bumps) near the tattoo.
